Today marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Andi Parhamovich Fellowship. The fellowship was founded in memory of NDI staff-member Andi Parhamovich, 28, who was killed on January 17, 2007, when her convoy was attacked while returning from a political party training session in Baghdad. Over the past ten years, the fellowship has had a lasting impact for women’s political empowerment around the world. Over a series of posts, we will examine this impact and remember Andi Parhamovich’s legacy. cc The Andi Foundation
